TOWN OF BROOKFIELD — Turns out the Wahlberg family is more than actors and performers — they are also creative in the kitchen. Their restaurant Wahlburgers will open its first location in Wisconsin this summer in The Corners of Brookfield.

The 6,000-square-foot restaurant will be on the northeast side of the center and will serve up signature burgers, home-style sides, fish, chicken and vegetarian options, and a full bar including specialty drinks such as adult frappes and floats.

Chef Paul Wahlberg created the franchise along with two of his brothers, actors Mark and Donnie, with the intent to satisfy a variety of taste buds by offering lighter and heartier menu offerings served in a casual and musicfilled atmosphere. “Families will have a great time, and hopefully share a lot of laughs and love when they enjoy my family’s delicious recipes at our new Brookfield Wahlburgers location,” said Paul Wahlberg in a statement.

Some of the Wahlburgers locations are owned by Hy-Vee, Inc., including the future Town of Brookfield location.

“Hy-Vee is excited to open its fourth Wahlburgers location, and to bring a new dining experience to Wisconsin,” said Randy Edeker, chairman of the board, CEO and president of Hy-Vee. “Families will enjoy great food in a fun atmosphere, served with the excellent customer service and hospitality that Hy-Vee and Wahlburgers are known for.”

Wahlburgers currently operates 29 locations in 19 states and Canada. In 2017, Hy-Vee announced that it plans to build, own and operate 26 Wahlburgers restaurants. Hy-Vee’s first three Wahlburgers locations opened in 2018 at Mall of America in Bloomington, Minnesota; West Des Moines, Iowa; and Olathe, Kansas.

“We’re thrilled to be chosen as the first Wahlburgers location in Wisconsin. Wahlburgers’ food and drink offerings and fun, upbeat environment make it the perfect addition to our tenant mix,” said Robert Gould, vice president of U.S. operations for IM Properties — a developer of The Corners. “2019 is shaping up to be an exciting year for The Corners, and restaurants like Wahlburgers will continue to deliver our unique town center vision.”
